It was another dreary day weather wise yesterday so it was nice to be able to sit down and work on the Country Cottage Sampler and forget about outside. I’ve finally managed to put all of the stitches into the basket, I really didn’t think it would be quite so time consuming, especially as it was only filling in the spaces. Anyhow that is now done and I can get back to working on the flowers coming out of the basket which will give a bit more variety to my stitching over the next few weeks.
I had optimistically thought I would get this completed by the end of the year but somehow I don’t think that is going to happen. Can I get it completed within a year of starting? Hmm not sure on that one either as it was started in the middle of January so it only gives me about 9-10 weeks. What I should really be concentrating on is enjoying the stitching process rather than a deadline otherwise it’s going to feel more like a chore. Having said that it would be nice to get the left hand side of this piece completed by the end of the year which would just leave the bottom third to do next year.
